NFL trade season is hitting its boiling point.

The trade deadline is just hours away, as teams have until 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday to make any final in-season deals. 

As teams try to make one last move to either gear up for a Super Bowl run or recoup compensation on players with limited organizational futures, here are all the notable trades that have taken place ahead of the deadline.

Here’s a recap of what has gone down so far.

October 31

Dallas Cowboys owner & GM Jerry Jones: “I see us right now having a pat hand.”

The 5-2 Cowboys have won their last two games going into a pivotal game against the division-rival 7-1 Eagles. They could use help at linebacker after injuries to DeMarvion Overshown and Leighton Vander Esch, cornerback after Trevon Diggs‘ season-ending ACL tear, and receiver, where Brandin Cooks and Michael Gallup have fallen short of expectations. 

Jones’ statement on his 105.3 The Fan radio show could be perceived as posturing before the deadline, but Dallas has been loath to part with significant draft capital since trading a first-round pick for Amari Cooper in 2018.

Atlanta Falcons acquire DL Kentavius Street from Philadelphia Eagles 

Key stats: Street has recorded four total tackles while playing just 17% of the Eagles’ defensive snaps across eight games.

Who else is involved: Philly is sending a 2025 seventh-round pick with Street and is getting a 2024 sixth-round pick.

Why it matters: The Falcons lost defensive tackle Grady Jarrett to a season-ending knee injury Sunday, and Street is familiar and inexpensive depth. He played for Falcons defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen with the New Orleans Saints, logging 518 snaps last season. He won’t play at Jarrett’s level, but the drop-off isn’t as glaring with Street there. — Greg Auman

Seattle Seahawks acquire DT Leonard Williams from New York Giants

Key stats: Williams has recorded 21 total tackles with 1.5 sacks in seven games this season.

Who else is involved: The Giants will receive a 2024 second-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick from the Seahawks. 

Why it matters: Seattle is loading up its defense after it improved to 5-2 and moved into first place in the NFC West on Sunday. Williams has been well-regarded as one of the league’s best interior defensive linemen over the last few seasons, earning a three-year, $63 million contract with $45 million guaranteed during the 2021 offseason.
